Wow!  2012 is over, and I imagine most of us are (not?) looking forward to losing weight and paying holiday bills.  I suggest that when you get a respite from taking down the decorations or from standing in those long return lines, settle back with your Kindle, Nook, IPad, or just an old fashioned book and take your mind off the fiscal cliff and those things other people call the issues. Yes, once again we have just what you’re looking for:  a superb selection of good books.  Check out a couple of the books mentioned above.
